Surprise!

I finally finished my Curve of Pursuit blanket!

Monika - you guessed it right on!



I started this way back in July of 2006. It's a design by Pat Ashforth & Steve Plummer
of Wooly Thoughts

I used #8 needles and Lion Brand Woolease.

Lots and lots of garter stitch. I really love this blanket and I think I am keeping it for a winter snuggle up! If and when I ever make another one, I will omit the last set of blocks.
It's about 50"x50" right now and omitting that last set would make it more of a baby sized blanket. Less bulk for knitting laying on top of one's lap - especially in the summer heat!


I am already planning another Wooly Thoughts blanket - bought this pattern already.

They are so addictive!

This reminds me of what my grandma use to say to me when she just dearly loved something honey its just an eyefull. If I had made it I would keep it out year round just in case someone stopped by that had not seen it. I am still making fish for the fishy ghan. I will be so glad when its done it has been slow going for me.
